Northeast Monsoon, LPA to bring rains over parts of the country

The Northeast Monsoon (Amihan) affecting Luzon and a low pressure area (LPA) located east of Surigao del Sur will bring rains over parts of the country on Monday, PAGASA said in its weather forecast.

Caraga and Davao Region will have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to the LPA. Flash floods or landslides may result due to moderate to at times heavy rains.

At 3 a.m., the LPA was estimated to be located at 630 km east southeast of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur.

The LPA has a low chance of intensifying into a tropical depression, PAGASA said, according to a report on Unang Balita.

Cagayan Valley, Apayao, Aurora, and Northern Quezon meanwhile will have cloudy skies with rains due to the Amihan. Moderate to heavy rains may lead to flash floods or landslides.

Visayas and the rest of Mindanao may experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms due to the LPA and localized thunderstorms. During severe thunderstorms, flash floods or landslides may occur.

Meanwhile, Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon may expect partly cloudy to cloudy skies with light rains due to the monsoon.

Coastal waters will be moderate to rough in the seaboards of Luzon and the eastern sections of Visayas and Mindanao.

As for the rest of the country, coastal waters will be slight to moderate.
